In every debate, there are two teams: the affirmative and the negative. The affirmative’s job is to argue for the resolution. The negative’s job is to argue against the resolution. At the end of each debate, the class will vote for the winning side.
The two resolutions are:
1. Health Care: Resolved that the United States should adopt a single
payer health care system.
2. Ride Sharing: Resolved that the benefits of ride sharing companies Uber and Lyft outweigh the drawbacks (or disadvantages).
